The first attempt at flan went so well, we knew we would make individual sized servings shortly thereafter. Goya offers individual packets of three flan for a few dollars, but it is much more satisfying to make flan at home.
The simplicity of ingredients, egg, condensed milk, evaporated milk and caramel yields a lightly sweet custard. This time we used a bit less sugar for the caramel and omitted vanilla and the individual flans turned out just as creamy and luscious.
